The interview describes Ms. Zeidler's childhood in Braunschweig, Germany; her memories of antisemitism; her family's decision that the children leave Germany; and her escape to Italy in 1936. Ms. Zeidler describes the effect that the events of Kristallnacht in November 1938 had on her family and her father's arrest and imprisonment in Buchenwald concentration camp. She discusses her eventual arrival in South Africa, where she stayed until 1962, and her immigration to the United States. Ms. Zeidler relates the fate of her family, all of whom perished during the Holocaust.
